Summer Solstice Sunrise Yoga

Celebrate the longest day of the year with yoga instructors from CorePower Yoga, as they lead us through an early morning yoga session in Flowers Field. Watch the sun rise over downtown Raleigh on the first day of summer as you breathe, stretch, relax and enjoy the peacefulness of nature. This session is suitable for all ages and abilities. Previous knowledge of yoga is not necessary.

6:00am - 7:00am

Please arrive at 5:45am, and find a spot in Flowers Field. We'll get started a little after 6 a.m. We are so excited to ring in the official start of summer with you at beautiful Dorothea Dix Park!
